Royal Marine or Boba Fett?

This week members of the British Royal Marines conducted boarding training exercises using an experimental jet pack suit. 

The jet pack suit was developed by Gravity Industries, and the trial showed a test pilot launch from inflatable speedboats trailing a larger patrol ship, the HMS Tamar – also known as the Swiss Army Knife of the Royal Navy. The pilot used the suit to launch from a speedboat and skim low across the water, before landing on the deck of the British warship and toss a boarding ladder to Royal Marines in the speedboats below, allowing them to quickly board the ship.

Of course the rest of the fleet had to have a laugh!
